I am Laura, the girl of the crew. I am spanish and I am working in Lapland Memories since 10th of January. I will like to show you my point of view about the last filming days.
Last weekend we were in Pyhätunturi, up in finnish Lapland, filming some snowmobiling. with Red Epic. It was the first time that I’ve lived this kind of filming experience. You see always the final product but “behind the scenes” sometimes is really hard, at least for me this time. In such a wild scenary everybody has to be really careful with the material and you have to be ready to stay in a windy and frozen place for hours.

About the filming that day: after the whole light hours filming snowmobiling, we tried to mix it with some fire. The experiment was great and now we have great images about that in slowmotion. Red Epic + ShuttlePod + Revolution Head is a really good mix. I’ve never seen this camera before and is really easy to handle and the quality is the best. I am really happy that I can be part of the team and be part of the filming experience with Red Epic.

About days 2 and 3, we were filming in the mountains again some snowmobiling and landscapes of Lapland from the top of the mountains. The weather was a bit worse and I think we felt sometimes more than -20, above all the last day when everything got frozen all the time. Anyway, the sky was beautiful these two days. The bad thing was that every stuff we had: clothes, backpacks, cameras, rails… Were full of ice all the time. By the way, these days, the places we choose for the filming were not so difficult to reach. About the weather, second day was ok and we finished quite soon, but last day was a very foggy day and we had to wait to get some good views. We used again Red Epic and the dolly + Revolution Head, and here is what proofs that everything was completely frozen this day. Just look at my hair…
